Capilla de Santa Barbara, Barichara

(4.5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
The simple 18th century chapel of Capilla de Santa Barbara charms with its historical presence and humble appearance. The mainly brick construction shows some age, adding to the chapel's historical appeal. A simple cross and sculpture of an ox pulling a plough greet visitors at the entrance. Lush orange and palm trees surround the chapel, which sits at the top of a hill. The interior remains just as simple, with a few pews and a very small altar. As you exit the chapel, take in the view of the white houses and rows of terracotta-colored tile roofs that line the steep mountain road, and peer out onto the lush countryside that unfolds on the horizon.

  • She was my moments when I recorded the Pola and other tiger stripe, but this time with my spouse and my teenage son. Wonderful experience very well preserved their history and heritage. I'll be back soon. I'll stop in Villa de Leyva, and of course, my beautiful Barichara.

  • In the high part of the village is this cozy and old chapel, a pleasant walk from the square of the Center to a few minutes offers views of the architecture of this beautiful town.
